Kohl’s wants your Amazon returns
Kohl’s wants shoppers to skip the post office and bring their Amazon returns to its stores. The department store chain says it will accept Amazon returns at all of its 1,150 stores starting in July. Kohl’s has been testing Amazon returns at 100 stores for nearly two years and sees the service as a way to get people in its doors and potentially buy something while they’re there.
Those with Amazon returns don’t need to pack them up. Kohl’s says it will box items and ship them out for customers at no charge.
As part of the deal, Kohl’s is also giving Amazon the option to buy nearly 1.75 million of its shares over the next seven years at $69.68 a share, according to a government filing.
